I have been working at Dollar General part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great people to work with, so it's who you end up with. The workload is multitasking, but use your common sense. Also, it's not bad to ask for help from time to time from co-workers. This job is sort of demanding at first, but people just get used to it. Not sure which I like better, the opening shift or the closing shift. I hear you get paid weekly, but the weekly pay at first is bi-weekly if through direct deposit. It's great as long as your employers and co-workers are nice, just like any other job.

Cons

Just juggling two things at once. You also get your disgruntled customers who just hurl insults at you. Not much benefits for this part time job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just separate responsibilities for people.

    I worked at Dollar General part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The other employees were friendly and it was a very laid-back environment

    Cons

    This was my first job and I received absolutely no training of any sort. I did not get good hours and was paid minimum wage. When I started, the previous manager had just quit and all of the previous employees had either been fired or had quit also, so it was a completely new staff and it showed. The store was always a mess, registers were always backed up, etc. It's also this way at the other Dollar Generals in my area

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TRAIN YOUR STAFF MORE EFFICIENTLY. I would rather be extremely proficient in one area than be mediocrely cross-trained in several
